Favstar gets even better if you sign in.
Holier-than-thou media demands perfection, expects mayor not to be serial liar/cocaine user/drunk driver/friend of violent criminals.
Here’s my attempt to come to grips with what went on this aft. In all honesty, I don’t think it does it justice. http://fullcomment.nationalpost.com/2013/11/18/andrew-coyne-rob-ford-doesnt-need-to-hear-get-help-he-needs-to-hear-get-out/ …
I think when the mayor says he has “zero tolerance” for drugs he means he gets wrecked on the first hit.
Why the hell didn’t Harper bet Obama the Keystone pipeline on the game?
Jack Layton will be remembered for many things, but the gallantry of his last campaign will be his glory. Courage, grace & charm to the end.
I dream of a world where women can invite other women to fundraisers, without being scolded by other women for not doing it right.
THIS IS JUST UNREAL. Running over, more like. @chrisalecanada: video of #robford running into councillor: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QB1dJeMtb08&feature=youtu.be …
So the mayor of Toronto is caught doing drugs with violent gangs, and the Minister of Finance for Canada runs interference for him? Really?
In a culture of achievement, you'd just get up and announce the players. In a bureaucratic culture, it's about who's doing the announcing.
You do understand that we are not really a democracy, right? That parliament is a sham? That MPs are just props? If not, turn on QP.
I cannot comment on a TV show I have not seen or does not exist.
So we have multiple witnesses who heard the mayor threaten to kill somebody on live TV.
So that was a great convention, if you like being cooped up & harassed & ordered about by security goons everywhere you go. Congrats Tories!
My take on Michael Chong’s Reform Act: a hugely important bill, a chance to fix Parliament we must not miss http://fullcomment.nationalpost.com/2013/11/29/andrew-coyne-reform-act-bill-would-change-canadas-parliament-forever/ …
The senators’ crimes are so vile as to require their immediate suspension, w/out hearings, and so trivial as to be waved away w/an apology.
Every single thing Rob Ford has ever said about this story was a lie.
Fortunately Toronto has been in a state of emergency for most of the last three years.
